I'm about to go in for a 30,000 mile service, which will cost about $300. The shop told me I should also think about getting the A/C pollen filters replaced (2 filters) for an additional $135, which seems kind of steep. How easy would it be for me to replace these filters myself?

I recommend replacing them, mine were FUNK NASTY when I did them at 30k. Then again, Texas is a little dusty (not the desolate wasteland everyone thinks it is, though) but I would offer this advice: replace your A/C filters when you would replace your regular one.

The filters are pretty easy to replace. You have to remove the glove box (several screws) and a brace, cut some plastic with some sidecutters, then swap them. Whole process takes about 1/2 hour, you can probably figure it out w/o the manual.

Don't have the dealer do it. Get someone with a Helms to copy the procedure for you and do it yourself. I think the filters cost me a grand total of $30.

Do they make K&N drop-ins to make our A/C run faster

Do what real racers do, take the filter out completely.
